USgeocoder makes it easy and efficient by providing web API services using XML-based Representational State Transfer (REST) style communications that are compatible with most web applications. USgeocoder API is designed for use by HTTP protocol clients. It returns XML responses depending on the subscriber's choice at the time of registration.

Authorized users can access the USgeocoder engine to obtain desired information using street address and Zip-5 information and tie the data to users' online applications in real time.
